Fell running taster session - 30th April 2017

This next session will run form 0945 to 1145, starting at Macclesfield Forest Visitor Centre, Trentabank.

In this session we will be re-capping kit selection, safety considerations, uphill and downhill running techniques, and applying those to different types of terrain covered on the first session.

The minimum age is 12 and all juniors under 18 must have a signed consent form given to Shaun Wilde (Session Leader) by the parent or guardian. The parent or guardian can optionally attend the session.

The kit requirement is:

  • Training shoes (ideally studded fell shoes)
  • Running socks
  • Running tights or shorts
  • Long sleeve wicking base layer
  • Mid layer or additional t-shirt (optional)
  • Breathable waterproof jacket (to be used or carried dependent on the weather)
  • Running gloves and hat/buff (to be used or carried dependent on the weather)
  • Small running bag to carry jacket, gloves and hat/buff (weather dependent)
  • A change of clothes, a towel and filled water bottle (to be kept at the start location)
  • It is also recommended to have an energy based snack for after the session

Anyone who wishes (parent and guardians email on behalf of their juniors) to attend please email Shaun Wilde at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that we can manage the numbers and have the appropriate numbers of helpers on the day.
